    Ran a test using http://html5test.com/ on a few browsers I have installed. Was surprised at the results ... higher is better...

    Boat Browser = 281 + 3 bonus points
    Dolphin Browser = 281 + 3 bonus points
    Firefox Browser = 328 + 9 bonus points
    Chrome Browser = 369 + 11 bonus points
    Opera Mobile Browser = 369 +11 bonus points
    Aurora Browser = 372 + 9 bonus points

    Yes desktop browsers on Windows, Linux, OSX etc. will score differently. These were all on the Nexus 7. I found Opera on Windows and Linux to be among the best but didn't try Chrome on Windows (yet). In fact haven't had my desktop or lappie on much since I got this little fondleslab. :-)

    IE... score says it all... sad!

    Does it correlate to browsing experience? I've only used chrome n dolphin wondering if Aurora might be a better alternative

    Aurora is the alpha version of the NEXT Firefox. There are daily builds that I have been installing every day and I have yet to find a day where it is unstable on my Nexus 7. In fact, it's become my browser of choice and Flash works GREAT on it as well. There's nothing that says you can't have 4, 5 or even 6 browsers installed. Give Aurora a try you might be pleasantly surprised!

    I forgot to test one other browser I have installed... Overskreen Browser. It's a pretty cool browser I found back on my Transformer.

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rbrowser&hl=en

    Anyways... it scores: 281 + 3 bonus points.

    Yes, I have a problem with browsers like some people do with gambling or... :-)
